't get enough, thought we were more awake than we were. abc's ron claiborne took part in that experiment. >> reporter: my eyes are open, but what you can't tell in this experiment is i am actually asleep. every day, 250,000 americans fall asleep while driving. like this woman who was videotaped seemingly nodding off at the wheel in denver. sleep-deprived drivers are blamed for thousands of crashes every year, but many times it's not that obvious. scientists say there is something called microsleep. where you can fall asleep for just a few seconds without realizing it, sometimes with your eyes open. hi, i'm ron claiborne. we traveled to liberty mutual research institute outside of boston where they study microsleep. >> a very brief transition from wakefulness new sleep. it can last up to 20, 30 seconds. you are waking. you are asleep. >> i would drive while sleep deprived. to mimic conditions of people who do not get enough sleep. i stayed up all night. >> i have been up 24 hours. >> at the lab i was looked up to a brain wave monitor. i thought i could handle the driving. i feel okay now.
challenges. he put up ron johnson to beat mitch mcconnell because he's too liberal. he's leaving, quitting his senate seat, giving it up, to run the heritage foundation. we have other stuff coming up, but let's start with that. >> first of all, he's going to make a lot more money. ed fuelner, who is leaving, makes $1 million a year. demint has a net worth of $140,000. secondly, the leadership has tried to rein him in. they've said, you can't go out and go after these conservative republicans with really conservative republicans in primaries because you're setting us up to lose senate seats. now that he's out of there, he can become a kind of cross between grover norquist and the jim demint he always was. he can drive these hard right ideas, but he can also sponsor hard right candidates in republican primaries. i think he thinks he's going to be more important at the heritage foundation than he is in the senate. >> let me ask you about that, john. it looks to me not just -- the money is always a draw for some people, i'm not sure it is here. he would have been chairman of the commerce commi
me now, politico executive editor and ron mott live in lansing, michigan. first, you, ron mott, the day after the governor rick snyder has signed the right-to-work bills, what is the labor movement planning to do next? >> well, we don't know, andrea. pretty quiet on that front, much like it is down here on the street. far different scene yesterday, of course, a lot of union workers very upset about not just this legislation that's going to wipe out a 77-year-old requirement that workers be forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment, they are upset also about how this was jammed through the legislature. this was passed in both bodies in four days time and signed by the governor last night. what the advocates of this legislation say is union shops and unions no longer can just depend on fattening up their membership roles by default, they actually have to go out and sell themselves, sell their benefits to the workforce in order to earn those memberships. so we'll see how this all changes. the law will go into effect some time in late march or early april. we don't know
weather continues into the night. let's get to meteorologist ron jackson from ktfw fox 4 in dallas. tell us, ron, specifically what you know about mobile and what you know about what's happened in your area. >> well, jamie, here in the dallas-fort worth area we have officially had four tenths of an inch of snow on the ground. that's the first time we have had snow on the ground in 37 years here in the dallas-fort worth area. we are definitely not used to it. most of the snow fallen has moved off to the northeast. right now we are battling, biggest concern will be traffic problems. temperatures are expected to drop down low to mid 20's with streaks. we are not used to weather conditions like this where a lot of facilities have sand andg conditions for the roads, we just don't have that we do have some sand trucks but a big problem tonight will be the icy streets as temperatures drop down into the low 20's here in north texas. pretty unusual. >> all right. well we want to keep an eye as well on these twisters. thank you so much, ron for the situation where you are. but in mobile, alabama n
." that was the word today from ron barber, who was shot and wounded in the mass shooting in tucson last year that killed six people and wounded 13, including the grievous wounding of congresswoman gabby giffords. ron barber, who took gabby giffords' seat in congress after she stepped down to deal with her injuries. he said today, "as those of us in tucson know, senseless acts such as these tear at the very fabric of a community." mark kelly, gabby giffords' husband said today, "i just spoke with gabby, and she sends her prayers from tucson." in oak creek, wisconsin, where four months ago there was another mass shooting at a sikh temple, another six people gunned down at that temple. a school superintendent there today told the local press that she cried when she heard the news out of newtown, connecticut. she said "we always think it can't happen here, and we pray fervently that it won't. but as we know from our experience this summer, it can happen anywhere." the mayor of aurora, colorado, is still helping his community try to recover from the mass shooting there this summer where 12 people
is not decimated. >> so joining us now are cnn contributor and democratic strategist lena cardona and ron barjean. is it me or does it appear that john mccain becomes more grumpy over time? he's like the neighbor, the guy when you put the ball in the neighbor's yard and he's like, hey, get out of my yard, kid. am i wrong with that? am i the only one who notices that, john? >> well, this is ron -- >> ron, i'm sorry. >> no, i think senator mccain makes some very good points about susan rice, and i think he's clearly frustrated about her comments that were made. i think he's frustrated about the fact she came to capitol hill and wasn't able to convince him nor lindsey graham or senator susan collins that she would be a good nominee to be secretary of state. so, you know, i think that's what you're hearing in his voice right now is a lot of frustration. >> i'm not only talking about this particular issue. we're going to get into the meat of that, but i'm talking about other issues, fiscal cliff and on and on and on. it just appears that way. lena, you heard some people talking about civil leaders wit
of privacy amendments, including one from democratic senator ron wyden of oregon. his amendment would have required the head of the country's spy agencies to tell congress when americans accidentally got spied on. right now, we have no way of knowing how often that happens. also, republican senator rand paul of kentucky, he wanted to force the government to get a warrant to read our e-mails and other electronic communications. for privacy advocates, these amends were the good news. the bad news, the democratic-controlled senate killed every single one of those amendments. killed them dead. they voted them all down. and today the once-controversial warrantless wiretapping bill was extended for another five years, and amazingly, almost nobody seems to have noticed. we used to fight about this tough. the whole reason fisa needs congressional reauthorization every few years is that we are supposed to reassess it, debate it, have a big conversation about it. but we were quiet this time. so let's have one here. joining us now, not to be quiet about it, is my friend julian sanchez, a research fel
it hurt one party and elevate the other. joining me is marge yee omaraand ron myer. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> let me start, i am struck by the fact that tim geithner is so political in the discussions and calling out republicans, is that normal. >> i think he's on the way out of the door and doing it for president obama because they want the negotiations to found. howard dean said this is the best deal progressive democrats are going to get. if the fiscal cliff and the deal and what happens if we go off of the cliff. it really is a dnplatform. higher taxs and defense spending and isn't that what their platform said. they want to go off of the fiscal cliff. then negotiations fail president obama will not get blamed. it is someone else. >> gretchen: marjorie that sounds right other than the middle class getting hit with a tax hike isn't everything that ron just part of the dnc. >> it is it a big issue. president obama and really american people don't want to see middle class americans pay additional 2000 in taxes n which is what will happen in addition to cuts to pro
, executive director of american values institute, and ron bonjean a guy who knows how things get handled in the house of representatives. he was former communications director to house speaker hastert. the house, ron, is saying look we sent spending bills over to the senate and they have languished. so it is their turn. is that a workable strategy? i mean are americans going to say okay, the house has done its job? >> well, here, if we don't get a deal, even a small deal i think that americans will blame washington in general. you know the president tried to blame republicans in over the weekend, you know, on a sunday talk show and i don't think that's the way voters see it. i think they will say, you know what? democrats, republicans you're not getting anything done. we elected, we reelected president obama because he wanted him to go on a path forward but it's not happening. you, and i think if the markets crash, it will scare a lot of people and i think and taxes will go up. i think they will point at both sides. a big problem for both parties. jon: alexis, harry truman had the famous
a reality rally. the reality is ron johnson we all know came in. he was a rock star at avalanche he is going to turn this whole thing upside down and reinvent the department store. forget sales and promotions, that is not how you do it. he has never been in a j.cc penney and it is a lot harder than selling apple products. stock has had a huge roll up, it went and got hammered and has been coming back and the law firm there saying they got their act together, jpmorgan, they're bringing back this discount, they're bringing back promotions, they have a friend and family thing. this is what i like. i am a volume die. the volume has been phenomenal. i believe 95% of all news in the market somebody knew the day before it came out or the week before it came out despite the rules. something is going on. there's a 43% short position on the stock. if there is good news, there could be asia huge pop to the upside. unlike tim clark, ron johnson is considered a celebrity ceo and might get the benefit of the doubt. it is i ridge the idea but could be a huge short m bit. cheryl: his pain would be over. for

director for the dr. ron cruise who is a retired army chaplain. good morning to you, sir. >> thank you for having me. >> gretchen: we see a situation in west point. one cadet who was an athiest felt uncomfortable with taking part in involuntary prayer, your reaction. >> it is a shame we don't respect the pluralism. can prayer in west point went back from the founding of our country and we need to respect the religious beliefs of all. those who believe and those who don'tment those who believe have every right to prayer and those who don't believe opt out of the prayer. we need to remember that our founding fathers, george washington upon his appointment as commander-in-chief in the army. one of his first acts was to ask congress to authorize chaplains in every brigade so that religious services could be held. prayer is fundament will in the lives of our soldiers from the beginning of our country and west point would do well to resist efforts by athleast advocates. >> i read a portion of that statement from the group that wants to do away with it. they gave the academy 30 days to end pr
weeks. was supposed to come back to office this week. next is ron from cincinnati, good morning. caller: i wish mrs. clinton well. they take social security and want to privatize it. they took the money out and that is a debt that we owe to ourselves. you buy their cars and trucks. whatever you buy from them -- it would transfer the overhead. they complain about 4% of the taxes. host: thank you for the call. this is from politico. uck.senate appears stoc charles is joining us from arkansas. caller: good morning. you wanted and got something from nothing. you voted for these people. you better look to your children and grandchildren and apologize. for every dollar that you get from the government, your 46 centsare in bdegt -- you are in debt 46 cents. look down and apologize to your children. that stands for everybody. the adjustment talk about social security. -- the gentlemen talked about social security. that came out of the general fund by president johnson. he did that just to get a vote. these people are going to give it to him. thank you for your time. host: thank you and happy ne
off all of these massive regulations that are being planned, and now we've come to what senator ron portman -- rob portman is calling the regulatory cliff. it's going to cost american taxpayers more money, hundreds of thousands of jobs. these things are all coming to roost right now, so we are in a situation where the regulatory machine is revving up, and barack obama is going to impose these new, six new regulations under the epa alone. just one of those, which is regulating particles in the air, 680,000 jobs are going to be lost if that regulation goes through. >> can i hold you, can i hold you to that? megyn: go ahead, simon. >> let's come back in six months, a year, 18 months, and you prove those 680,000 jobs were lost because of a regulation that may or may not be promulgated. >> we'll see if it happens. >> this is ridiculous scare tactics. >> it's not scare tactics, simon. >> many of these regulations are mandated by congressional law, and it's just the basic argument behind this that somehow this president wants big government in everybody's lives is not borne out by the fact
in the house of represent tifrs. dennis kucinich and ron paul. president obama ordered more drone strikes in his first term than president bush did in his combined terms. the strike just last week killed a senior leader in pakistan near the border of afghanistan and the two congress men want president obama to release all the information and the data and detail that he ordered against many terrorists. representative kucinich joins me live. welcome back and nice to see you. >> good to be with you. >> the judiciary did address this, but me why you are challenging the president. >> it's not about challenging the president, but up holding the constitution of the united states. no president has the right to launch missile attacks on another country without congressional approval. no president has the right to take away someone's right to due process of law. they happen to be an american citizen abroad and we asked for the legal justification. that's what we are looking at. three years is a long time to wait. 300 drone strikes is enough time to say to the white house, where is your justificatio
. and ron barber will be bringing his own experience. the tragedy in newtown, truck the hearts of americans. there's complications. it's hard but we can get the job done with calibrated legislation in a way that really is effective. we mourn the loss of precious children, reading about their love of sports, animals, music. and we mourn the teacher, the counselor, the principal of the school. we owe them again to do everything in our power to take sensible action to prevent gun violence to ensure the safety of the schools and our neighborhoods and to build a future of safety for all americans. with that now i'm very pleased to yield to carolyn mccarthy, an inspiration -- >> you've been listening live to house minority leader, nancy pelosi, bay area democrat, speaking in congress with several other house democrats talking about the mass shooting in connecticut. shy quoted president obama saying these -- she quoted president obama saying he's tragedies must end and to end them, we must change. they are channeling their energy around this horrible strategy. so again, we're continuing to follow
. mitt military 568 delegates, ron paul 71. >> yeah, okay. what about the states where they're still working through the process, which is most of them, you know, whether, you know, whether it's up in maine. right now we're doing very well in the state of washington. north dakota. excellent, now in nevada. and our people are in the right places and doing the things to become a delegate. it's way too soon to write anybody off. just because somebody is in second or third place, there's a race going on. what if mitt romney isn't the best person? >> people have tried to portray you as a kind of ruthless money machine who some failed, some succeeded, you didn't care, you still got your fee, or you made a ton of money but actually quite a few of the companies that failed, a lot of people lost their jobs, their livelihoods and lost money. to me the key question is do you know instinctively from your recollections how many of those companies that you went into would have failed anyway if you hadn't? >> well, there's no question but that a number of places where we went in and invested, we we
that in much broader debt deal. but when you talk to republicans ron johnson from wisconsin, the real problem the president is not willing to rein in spending. >> senator harry reid should have passed a budget in the last three years and you would have a framework and budget resolution. the fact we're down to the 59th minute of the 11th hour and you have a couple officials behind closed doors trying to do a back room deal is an outrage. >> reporter: we're waiting for senator reid to come to the microphones and what is significant about that he has is supposed to give a status update on the talks, not just about cpi and reining in entitlements whether that is going to be part of a final deal but what is the threshold on tax cuts and increases. on the meeting with friday says he wants to go back to the threshold of $250,000 or less. that is tax cut over 250, it's a tax increase. senator mcconnell may be trying to move that to $400,000. >> arthel: and then the notion of lowering social security payments is definitely off the table in terms of democrats' side? >> it's clear from senator reid said
conservative. ron johnson is a tea party guy. he wants to give on the president before the end of the year and go ahead, i guess pass a bill that would extend the rates for everyone and that wouldn't pass in the house and say, okay, fine, we'll do it for 98%. put that in the president's court, get that done and is use the debt ceiling for spending. >> exactly. no, that is -- >> but he's not getting anywhere with boehner and cantor? >> it's because boehner so far is not willing to go along with that strategy. the way that it works for boehner is if he ultimately puts it on the floor and tells most of his members that they have a chance to vote against it and make playing their opposition to any tax rate increase. but he hasn't been willing to do that so far. he would get some republicans to join with dm democrats and it would pass the house. but he doesn't want to put something on the floor that would clear the house without at least half of the republican members. spending is a sticking point, but there is an asymmetry in the negotiations. democrats have laid out what they want on taxes, s
more comfortable with. there are other changes they might be more comfortable with. host: ron has this suggestion from our twitter page. guest: that is a term we heard. when the cut health care, someone will be bearing the brunt of that cut. that is similar to the concept of those care organizations. they also include quality metrics as part of the contract, where they look at people's outcomes. one way to prevent against the u.s. skimping on care. host: this from sasha -- guest: that is one proposal that gets floated by democrats. medicare part d bargains for drugs. i do not know -- i do not think it would be a cure all, the one proposal that would fix everything. democrats think it would reduce the cost of medicare. host: is there a plan b? guest: we have seen them as the january 1 deadline before and get 30-day extensions. at some point they were working without an extension. medicare told doctors to hold off on submitting your claims for a little bit. that is a situation we have ended up in before. we'rere talking months, talking about big pay cuts for medicare doctors. medica
over the fiscal cliff have many tea party republicans like wisconsin senator ron johnson fuming. >> does speaker boehner speak for you? >> i don't know what he's doing behind closed doors, truthfully. nobody speaks for me, other than myself. >> reporter: but he told cnn, he won't filibuster a compromise that raises some taxes. >> we have to understand about our reality in some point in time, republicans have no power in this negotiation. there's only one person that can prevent taxes from being increased in the american public. it's the president. because without any action, without him being willing to sign a bill, taxes go up for every american. i don't want to see that happen. >> reporter: some conservatives who once had the power to say my way or the highway now realize the train has already left the station. some of these tea party republicans caution their new spirit of compromise largely depends on what the president proposes and a few of them remain convinced the president simply wants to take the country over the fiscal cliff, to gain the kind of leverage they used to h

. host: hi, ron. what do you think about the gun laws as a gun owner? caller: i have two weapons and i call them weapons because i served in our military. i have a critter gun to take care of small rodent. i would never consider an ar-15 for that purpose and an extended clip for something like rabbits or groundhogs is laughable. i also own a 12 gauge shotgun. as a person who handles an assault weapon, i can tell you they are designed to maximize killing of human beings. they are not sporting weapons of any kind, and allow people to have them with extended clips is laughable. i expect members of the nra are going to continue to expel this mischaracterization of what these weapons are for. host: frank is from oklahoma. we want to show the front page of "usa today" this morning. caller: i do not think the laws need to be changed. i have a 380 that i carry as a concealed weapon. it is about the same size as a 9 millimeter. host: so it is a handgun. caller: i carry it as a concealed weapon and i am licensed to do that. i have a home defense weapon that i use, a model 191145 caliber semi-aut
remember, president bush doing the no new taxes. also remember, ron redmond agreed to tax increases five times. this is a relatively recent occurs within the republican party. it was less economically oriented than it was in a temper political gain. they thought it was -- a way to gain political power rather than a reason to be economically. on this issue. you said he was a prominent republican. bruce today no longer considers himself to be a republican. he is outspoken about some of the economic craziness that has come from the party. he is what i would call an economic rationalist. black republican circles. one of them is george bush 41. another is dick garbage. if youhost: stating the obviousn our twitter page. john boehner does not know how to herd cats. independent line. host:good morning. caller: good morning. i have a comment on the entitlement programs, spending. i believe social security and medicare programs do not need cutting. that is the elderly's safety net so that they do not end up destitute and without adequate medical care. other spending and entitlement, i believe, doe
exists. people like former presidential candidate ron paul, his son rand paul -- them and a bunch of other people disagree with that. they are intended to bring that view into the marketplace of ideas. i am here to tell you that that is not where the center of gravity is. right now, america does have a unique role in the world, we are the guarantor of security in several regions and a lot of countries depend on that. if we're going to change that whole system and diversified power and take america out of the role of policing the world, that is a possibility, but i do not see it happening. host: a question. if the president was not watching in real time, the national security adviser should have been. why didn't he tell the president? guest: we know the president was told about it, he was aware of it as it was going on. the first wave of attacks happened in a wave of 30 minutes. there is a lot of unanswered questions, not just what the president should be doing, but what about the national security adviser? these are two men who have responsibility for the whole world. what about t
